The United States’ National Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee (NAIAC) Takes Precautions on AI


The National Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee (NAIAC) presents its first report to the President of the United States and set up another organization to assist with regulating the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in law enforcement. The discovery comes as fraud researchers warn that thieves continue to employ technology to execute phishing assaults.

According to the NAIAC assessment, the Biden-Harris administration focuses on building “trustworthy AI” to strengthen the US’s worldwide position. It further states that it will establish a subgroup to address matters associated with the use of AI in law enforcement.

This subgroup offers helpful suggestions to the President on topics like bias, data security, the adoption of AI for security or law enforcement, and legal standards such as those that guarantee AI use is consistent with privacy rights, human rights,  freedoms, and disability rights.

In response to the disclosure, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) declares that research and development, increased international collaboration, and assistance for employees in the “AI era” will be among NAIAC’s key goals.

Ultimately, we are at a critical juncture in the evolution of AI technology and must move quickly to keep up with the modifications it brings to our lives,” said US Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves.

We must ensure that we strike the correct balance between innovation and risk as AI creates tremendous prospects for advanced areas like medical diagnostics and access to healthcare and education.

While this is ongoing, Sift, a company that offers Fortune 500 corporations digital fraud prevention services, issues a warning in its most recent report about the emergence of increasingly complex social engineering schemes, which is another critical area of attention for NAIAC going forward.

According to the statement, “the game-changing technology, powering well-known chatbots like ChatGPT and Bard, uses algorithms to create original content in the form of words, code, images, audio, and video based on practically any given prompt.
